Wow I wish I had found you guys 21 days ago! I need someone to hold my hand. Today is hatch day and I can't take it. I am so worried about my babies. I think I have done everything correctly and could see movement in my four white eggs on day eighteen. I even made it through a 12 hour power outage on day 11. I have twelve eggs, 4 California Grey Leghorn, 3 Isa Browns, 3 buff orpingtons and 2 americanas. I am pretty sure nothing happened in one of the buffs, but saved it anyway since I have never candled before this. I am new to chickens so excuse me if I say anything stupid This spring I ordered 8 pullets from the local co-op. Much to my surprise one turned out to be a rooster! I didn't really care and intended to keep him until he became very aggressive and started attacking my kids when they went to collect eggs. I mentioned to a friend that I needed to get rid of him and much to my shock she came and got him. I was so riddled with guilt, I made an incubator and here I am!
